Hope Shiraz – from the wine virgin

The Hope Shiraz from Australia was poured with the Tortoise Creek Shiraz, so it was inevitable to compare them. The Hope Shiraz had a lot of the same blackberry/plum smells and tastes that the Tortoise Creek had, but they were expressed almost as undertones. It didn’t taste nearly as complex or explosive as the previous wine. It may not be correct to say this, but it also didn’t seem as “thick” – it seemed a lot lighter.

Nevertheless, the orzo salad did bring out a bit of spice in this one as well. But in the end, the Hope Shiraz didn’t finish like the Tortoise Creek. On another note, if someone is looking for a Shiraz with not a lot of kick and spice, this could be for them. It reminded me of some of the Petite Sirahs I will discuss later in the week.
